golden crabbers cost data

Metadata Updated: February 10, 2023

The South Atlantic Fishery Management Council (SAFMC) considered (but ultimately rejected) instituting a golden crab individual transferable quota (ITQ) program in 2013. In preparation for that proposal, 2010 cost data was collected in fiscal year 2011 via a mail survey. The population included all holders of a limited access golden crab permit (seven individuals owning 11 permits at the time of survey). Because the population is so small, a census was necessary. Questions on per-trip and fixed cost estimates were included. This data set includes survey results merged with individual landings from the golden crab logbook and Florida trip tickets. Summary results and forms can be found at
